Refractory Ceramic Fibre Kiln Packing
Refractory Ceramic Fibre Kiln Packing: the packing is produced using wire reinforced ceramic yarns and has an outside sleeving made of stainless steel yarn. Its sleeve prevents the packing from fraying and allows it to remain intact longer in the seating on the brick factory kiln. This packing features exceptional resistance and can easily be fitted into place on the kiln. The ceramic fibre is rated to 1260°C with the Stainless Steel layer rated to 650°C.
Please note that packing is normally supplied in loomstate form. In the manufacture of ceramic yarn a certain small percentage of organic binder is used to aid spinning. This can sometimes cause "flashing" at high temperatures. This can be avoided if the product is heat cleaned prior to use or if the organic impurities in the product can be allowed to burn off in situ on application for the initial period.
In light of health and safety concerns for refractory ceramic fibre we strongly urge our customers to consider our S-TEX Silica, Belcotex, HT Modified Glass or Bio Soluble alternatives.
